Public bug reported:

Trusty smoke lxc tests appear to hang starting from 20131102 (coincides
with the new trusty kernel Linux version 3.12.0-1-generic) . The issue
occurs on both amd64 and i386 images. When this occurs the vm where the
lxc containers get created becomes unresponsive when this happens.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install a default saucy server on a vm (either manually or preseeded default installation) with either i386 or amd64 image using KVM, libvirt
2. Do the following to install utah inside the VM
   sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:utah/stable
   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install utah

3. Run the lxc tests using
     sudo utah -r lp:ubuntu-test-cases/server/runlists/lxc.run

Looks like the test_lxc_simple test is the one that's causing the hang
and soon after http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-server-dev/ubuntu-

I tried to reproduce this using a saucy vm host and the tests are not hanging there. The jenkins jobs in smoke tests are using a precise VM host. 

The impacted smoke tests are:
